Long DescriptionMichael Brown offers an overview of the history of the development of African American and Afrocentric biblical interpretation. He then discusses how such scholarship began as an attempt to correct the biases African Americans perceived to be manifest in European and Euro-American biblical scholarship. This corrective, he says, quickly developed a life of its own, and Afrocentric biblical interpretation developed its own interpretive voice and style. Brown also examines Afrocentrism and the "blackening of the Bible", offering a critique of the color politics of Afrocentric criticism. He examines the evolution of womanism as a method of biblical interpretation, and explores and criticizes the ways that ideological and postcolonial criticism has contributed to Afrocentric biblical criticism. Finally, he presents the challenges he thinks confront the practice of such criticism, and he advances a new paradigm for the project that will put it in conversation with a wider audience of biblical scholars, classicists, historians, and theologians. Michael Joseph Brown is Assistant Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins, Candler School of theology, Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He is the author of What They Don't Tell You: A Survivor's Guide to Academic Biblical Studies and The Lord's Prayer through North African Eyes: A Window into Early Christianity.

Due to the winter storm here in Salem Oregon, we went off-line at around 1am on Saturday February 13th.

We have battery backups, commercial level internet and off-site redundant backups. But because most of the county lost power and our battery backups only last a couple hours, our servers all shut down. Internet in the area was out as well due to the ice storm. Trees took out power lines, phone lines and internet lines all over the state.

We restored power to the building through the use of a generator, but the internet was still off-line until crews could restore the cables.

We are still experiencing some intermittent issues because the servers didn't get a totally clean shutdown when the power went out and recovery checks are taking a long time to examine all of the drives.

Things should be back to normal soon.

Sorry for the trouble.
